My last post about connecting Nokia devices to the Imperial College wireless network received some postive feedback. This post is a continuation of the HOWTO series where I will guide you through a series of steps for setting up your Imperial College (exchange mail) to be directly pushed on your Nokia devices. Ofcourse, it is better if you have unlimited data package otherwise you may be required to pay for data when not connected to a wireless hotspot. Needless to say, I’m not responsible for the costs that may be incurred
Anyway, after the pseudo-legal statements, lets begin with the game. If you have an N-series, E-series or 5800 (and many others) device, then you can easily get your Imperial College mails directly pushed on to your handset. The first step is to ensure if your device is capable or not.
- Go to Nokia Mail for Exchange website (link) and download and install the application on your phone.
- Once this is installed a folder called MfE appears in your main menu. This is shown in the snapshot below.
- Inside the MfE folder, there are two icons. Go to Mail for Exch…
- The next screen should show something similar to what is shown below.
- Go to Options and the select Edit Profile to show the next page of settings.
- Now go to Connection and enter the required settings, as shown below.
- Next, go to Credentials and enter the username, password and domain (IC).
- This completes the settings on your phone, now go to the ICT website and register your account to use ActiveSync. Click here to go to the required page.
Once registration is complete, you should begin receiving your e-mails. As usual, drop in with a comment if you run in to any problem, or if you feel like appreciating the stuff.
